    I sit and watched a long in person demo of the designer showing how to use the templates and the designs that could be made from them. I was very impressed. Of course I signed up. One thing that caught my attention was the acrylic templates were very thick, not flimsy at all. No way a rotary cutter could ever nick them when cutting. A few booths away a thin specialty ruler was selling for the same price as her whole first set of four rulers.

    I went there and was thinking, who in the world can afford those? and then I saw the monthly thing. Those templates are more up my alley than those cutting machines like accucut. I am seriously considering this myself.

    There is a big discount by signing up for the monthly purchase. I used the drunkard's path templates tonight and the templates were great. They are heavy enough not to scooth all over the fabric. Her system is made so every template will fit with all the other templates. They all match up.

    A question? Can you rearrange several pieces to come up with different designs for the quilt? If that made sense...in other words...can you put several different templates together to make a design?

    not from what I gathered in watching/talking with her...thought it was very costly! Unless you really want to make tons of quilts that look like hers...not really worth it...and those templates are not any better/different than many others that are on the market doing the same thing...

    I have the complete system, I bought it all at one time. Since I do own it and use it I can give a factual review, not a guess. All the templates have matching seams with each other. That is the beauty of the system, everything matches up perfectly no matter which template you use with the others. The designs in the book and the website are to showcase the curves and how they all match up regardless of which ones are used. The block designs are not limited to that one look.
